It always has been storekeeping maxim that goods well displayed are half sold. LIGHTING is not enough . . . what counts is SEEING U NLESS store lighting is good enough so that everybody can see easily, it should be improved. Experience shows that most stores are not lighted well enough for quick seeing. People buy through the eye. Proper lighting makes ordinary merchandise more attractive and allows unusual merchandise to be appraised at its real worth. In the Old Days There was a place for the sign: "No trouble to show goods. If you don't see what you want—ask for it." But that was when only the "carriage trade" rated the courtesy of a complete showing of wares the merchant had for sale.

Such people shop slowly in a dark store; they think they can't make up their minds—but the real trouble is they can't see as well as they should. When they do buy, it is likely they will be disappointed, and often will return goods for credit. Many merchants Who have asked to have their store lighting and window lighting checked up have been surprised to find how much below the desirable and profitable standard their lighting was. It pays to know the truth. A rt*etiif*ut- l'' or a survey and sue- request KCStions ^ iu not O y._ gate you. The services of our lighting specialist may be had for the asking without charge.
